Under The Spotlight: Brad Potts

23 September 2015

Midfielder On The Spot

An ever-present in the Blackpool side this season, Brad Potts has settled quickly into life at Bloomfield Road after joining from Carlisle United in the summer.

The midfielder has started every game since his arrival and bagged his first goal in tangerine at Scunthorpe United earlier this month.

Now he goes under the spotlight, as we learn more about the 21-year-old. 

If you were the dressing room DJ, what three songs would be on your pre-match playlist?
Cheerleader, Truffle Butter and my all-time classic is Hold You by Gyptian.

What is your favourite piece of football memorabilia that you own?
My England shirt from when I played for the Under-19s. I started and had the number four shirt, but I still need to get it framed. 

What is your favourite away stadium to play at?
I played at Molineux and there was 30,000 there, so it was a great atmosphere. It was the last game of the season and they battered us 3-0 and lifted the League One trophy. 

Who is the biggest name in your phonebook?
Mark Cullen because he scored in the Premier League and never shuts up about it. 

What can you remember about your first job?
For work experience at school I went to work with my dad as a plumber and lasted one day. He knew I hated it and I couldn’t do a thing so he told me not to come back.

To date, what is your most embarrassing moment in football? 
I played at right-back against Bristol City for Carlisle and got robbed on the halfway line. They ran in and scored so I felt a bit of a tool in front of our fans. 

What is the best sporting event that you’ve watched live?
I was at Newcastle when they beat Juventus in the Champions League in 2002. Andy Griffin scored and the place was bouncing, it was ridiculously loud. 

What were your first pair of football boots?
I had a silver pair of Lotto boots and used to love them, but I’d never even think of wearing a pair of Lottos now.

What TV series are you addicted to currently?
When it’s on TV I always like watching Geordie Shore.

Including yourself, what four players in world football would be in your 5-a-side team?
David de Gea, Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard and Alan Shearer.
